Hi i have an application in which i save my data, save it to the database and then fetch the data whenever i need it, something like save and restore
i have list<> of objects (class) and serialize them to binary data then deserialize it for restoring,i can see that the data saved and restored as well, but when i run my program there is an error that i really don`t understand where it came from , if i run my application without save and restore , it will run without error but after restoring the same data the program will interrupt with an error, the details of my class and the error are explained below.

class i think related to the error :

   class prof:faculty

       public prof(string n, int ID, string f, string d, int did) : base(f,d,did)
        { nprof++; id = ID; name = n; }

       public prof(string n, int ID,faculty f, department d)
           : base(f,d)
           nprof++; id = ID; name = n;

       public prof(prof p, faculty f, department d)
           : base(f,d)
       {id=p.FId; name = p.FName; }

       public int PId { get { return id; } set { id = value; } }
       public string PName { get { return name; } set { name = value; } }
       public static int Nprof { get { return nprof; } }
       public void addcourse(course c) { teaching.Add(c); }
       public List<course> Teaching { get { return teaching; } }

       public void addtime(int d, int[] s) { teachingprog.Add(d,s); }
       public Dictionary<int, int[]> Teachingprog { get { return teachingprog; } }

       private string name;
       private int id;
       public Dictionary<int, int[]> teachingprog = new Dictionary<int, int[]>();
       private List<course> teaching = new List<course>();

       static int nprof = 0;


foreach (course cc in p.Teaching)
                           for (int j = 0; j < Nroom; j++)
                               int ii = Courses.IndexOf(cc);

this is the error part, int ii valued with -1(makes its following computation wrong) which if i am not wrong means cc could not be found in courses list<>

but why?
i serialize the prof list<> and the courses<> list
no error before save and restore, but after restore there is a error

Not enough information...
To be able to help you, we need to know how do you serialize/deserialize data. This part of code does telling us nothing.

Please, read my comment to the question. That makes that direct answer is impossible.

I'd suggest to read these:
